9. Re: TTimo: id Feb 6, 2013, 02:18 Krizzen
I'm really curious of the future of id tech 6. From what I've gathered, there's a possibility it will take serious advantage of multicore processors, something many games struggle with now. Also, the multicore nature of ray tracing and voxels lends itself well to the upcoming headmounted displays, like the Oculus rift. This is because a higher refresh rate can be achieved by dividing the display into blocks -- perfect for parallelization.

In the gaming world, this stuff is probably way off in the future, like 1-5 years. Still, id software becoming a console bitch makes me curious what will happen to the Tech 6 IP. Does Zenimax or Bethesda have any stake or is it strictly Carmack's? That is, could he perchance take the IP to Valve?
